Valuing our planet

We’re committed to minimising our impact on the planet – on the water and on the ground – so that future generations can continue to experience the wonder of our waterways and oceans and the unique wildlife that inhabit them.

Advanced Ecotourism

Sea World Cruises is certified through Ecotourism Australia’s world-leading ecotourism certification program.

  • Reducing our carbon footprint
  • Protecting our unique wildlife and endangered species
  • Making real contributions to conservation
  • Helping to preserve Australian Indigenous cultures
  • Providing an unforgettable, high-quality guest experience

The Ecotourism Australia Certification programs are recognised by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council.

Container Exchange Recycling Program

Sea World Cruises participates in the Containers for Change container recycling program. Since 2021, more than 20,000 eligible containers have been diverted from landfill and given a new life as new drink containers, road base, food trays, building materials and more.

Commercial Food Waste Recycling Program

In the hospitality industry, a staggering 50% of waste comes from food disposal. Taking a proactive stance, we’ve been actively engaged in the City of Gold Coast’s Commercial Food Waste Recycling Program since 2021.

Through this initiative, Sea World Cruises is redirecting organic food waste away from overburdened landfills. Instead, our kitchen waste undergoes a transformative journey, being recycled into nutrient-rich compost. This compost, in turn, becomes a valuable resource, nurturing the greenery of our local parks and gardens.
